Raising livestock and farming crops is what I would love to do. Experts estimate that there will be an additional two billion more people in the world by the year 2050. Somehow, we will have to feed these people. By raising livestock and crops, I would change the world by providing them sustainable sources of food. Instead of giving poor countries food, I would donate plants or meat sources. If a family has crops that will grow in the terrain where they live, they could grow enough food to feed themselves instead of relying on donations. If a family has an animal that is sustainable where they live, they can raise their own meat, eggs, or milk. They would be able to feed themselves for years if they bred their animals, killed some for meat, and kept some for milk and breeding.

My initial goal would be to able to provide two hundred underprivileged families in the United States and all across the world with corn or rice plants, depending on where they live, and a small family of rabbits or chicks. Rabbits breed very rapidly and can provide a reliable source of meat for a family. Chickens can provide eggs, reproduce rapidly, and can provide meat as well. I would start my own farm where I would raise crops and animals, and then I could begin donating animals and plants. As my farm grows, I could expand my donations and eventually be able to reach thousands of hungry families.
